FORMER PASSAIC GIRL DIES IN CALIFORNIA--
Miss Maude Harrison, Who Left for West with Parents Last May, Passes Away at Alhambra.
Word was received in passaic this morning of the death at Alhambra, Cal., of Miss Maude Harrison, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. A. J. Harrison, formerly of this city.
Mr. and Mrs. Harrison and their three children moved to California last May, principally for the benefit of the health of their daughter, who had been ill some time. After their arrival there Miss Harrison's health appreared to improve, but during the last few weeks she had taken a turn for the worse, and the end came last night.
Miss Harrison was a member of the First Methodist Church in Passaic and had many friends and acquaintances who loved and respected her for her kind and generous nature. She was popular among the young set in Passaic, and the news of her death will come as a severe shock to many friends here. She was twenty-two years old.
Besides her parents, she leaves a sister, Miss Clara Harrison, and a brother, Harlowe, who are also well known in Passaic. The telegram bearing the sad news states that the funeral will be held in Alhambra tomorrow. What other arrangemnets have been made are not known.
The engagement of Miss Harrison to Raymond Hart, of Gregory Avenue, was announced some time before Miss Harrison went West, but no date had been set for the marriage. Mr. Hart is greatly broken up over the death of his fiancee and his many friends offer their sincere sympathy.
From the Alhambra newspaper:
The funeral for Miss Maude Harrison was held at the home of the parents, 1816 Walnut Street, Alhambra, at 10 o'clock Saturday morning, September 16. She passed away the previous Thursday at the age of 21 years. The family had been sent for during the day and all were present at the time of her death. The family came to California from New Jersey only about three months ago on account of Miss Harrison's serious illness, which had begun the winter before, and only about five weeks had been spent in Alhambra. While they were almost strangers, they were not without friends, and these had come to realize that the departed, while of a quiet disposition, was a very capable young lady of high Christian character. The services were conducted by Rev. Luther A. Rice, pastor of the Marengo Avenue Methodist Church, and interment was in Rosedale Cemetery, Los Angeles, at 2 o'clock in the afternoon.
